FUSE, UCF icon from partnership for guaranteed admission for associate degree graduates from CF iconStudents choosing to join FUSE will feel a sense of belonging to both the College of Central Florida and USF communities. Students will be in a stronger position for making the transition due to greater integration into USF campus culture and additional support services for all 4.

Some of the highlights of FUSE:

  • Students admitted to the FUSE program will be placed on an academic pathway that provides a seamless transition from College of Central Florida to the USF System institution of their choice. This allows for timely completion of both the A.A. and bachelor's degrees.
  • Students on a defined academic path will be advised on course prerequisites, GPA requirements, tests and any other criteria necessary for admission into limited access or restrictive majors.
  • Academic advisors at CF will monitor the student's progress on that degree pathway to ensure that the student meets requirements to enroll at USF. USF will also offer advising on site at the FCS campuses to assist students in FUSE.
  • FUSE students will have access to USF facilities, events and activities. This includes a specially designed orientation session at the outset of the program. The goal is to make sure that all FUSE students feel that they are part of the larger university family while they are pursuing an Associates' degree at his/her home FCS institution.
